Car Safety Features Explained: Part 1 of 3

Whether you are looking to buy a new car or get one from online live auctions sites such as AutoBidMaster.com, it is important to ensure the car you choose has comprehensive safety features. Advancements in automotive technologies have made it possible for manufacturers to roll out safer and more reliable cars with more advanced safety features than before. In the first part of this three-part blog series, we provide an overview of some of the key safety features to look for when buying a car. Take a look.

  1. Auto Emergency Braking (AEB)

    Auto Emergency Braking (AEB) enables the driver to use maximum braking capacity in case of an imminent crash. The safety system may also apply independent brakes if the driver is unable to react in time. AEB works in mainly 3 categories:

    1. Low-speed system for city streets to prevent crashes and non-life threatening injuries such as whiplash
    2. Higher speed system scans up to 200 meters ahead of your vehicle using long range radar to avoid a crash at higher speeds
    3. The pedestrian system scans the road ahead to analyze relative pedestrians movement with the car to avoid a crash

    Cars can have one or more than one AEB systems and with different names, depending on the manufacturer. For instance, Alfa Romeo labels AEB as Autonomous Emergency Braking, Audi calls it Pre Sense Plus, BMW uses Driving Assistant Plus instead of AEB, and Ford calls it Active City Stop. You can look for these models at any of our salvage car auctions online.

  2. Active Cruise Control

    Active Cruise Control or Adaptive Cruise Control uses lasers or a radar system to detect the speed and movement of the cars ahead, so you can maintain a safe distance and apply brakes well within time. Once you turn on the ACC, you can set a maximum speed and the desired distance from any car ahead. The system usually comes paired with a pre-crashing system that may also apply emergency brakes in case of an imminent crash. The ACC may get hampered by heavy rain, dense fog, or snow.

  3. Blindspot Detection System (BDS)

    Developed by Volvo a decade ago, Blindspot Warning System is a safety feature that allows you to have a 360° view of the surroundings of the car. The system uses sensors or a radar system to track any car that is behind or trying to overtake your vehicle from any of the sides. The BDS may send you a warning by flashing light on the side view mirror, a beep, or steering wheel vibration if it detects a possible collision. Make sure the car you choose to buy at any online live auctions sites has BDS.
